. today we are finding out that according to the "wall street journal" that the u.s. government, the nsa is spying on, i don't know what word you want to use, but surveilling 75% of online communications. nsa built a surveillance network than officials have publicly showed. it can reach 75% of all u.s. internet traffic. this is days after the british government destroyed laptops that supposedly had information from edward snowden's files on it. i mean, what are the repercussions of this? >> i want to say one can be disturbed about what was done to glenn greenwald's partner and one can be concerned about the extent that is being revealed by the snowden leaks about nsa leaking. one can be disturbed by all of those things. being disturbed and concerned and the general march towards secrecy does not thereby say and bradley manning should be pardoned or released. i just want to make that clear, that those -- one can be properly concerned about all of those things and think that the snowden effect is more good than bad, but that -- again, i would say that doesn't mean that all bets are off and

. >>> the "washington post" headline says it all. nsa repeated low broke privacy rules. the report based on a may 2012 internal audit of the nsa and passed along by edward snowden. documents over 2700 specific privacy violations by the spy agency over a single 12-month period. the "post" reports most of the infractions involve unauthorized surveillance of americans or foreign intelligence targets in the united states. while the documents do not reveal how many americans were affected, they do appear to directly contradict what president obama said just last week. >> what you're not reading about is the government actually abusing these programs and listening in on people's phone calls or inappropriately reading people's e-mails. what you're hearing about is the prospect that these could be abused. now, part of the reason they're not abooufused is because these checks are in place. >> michael, these checks don't actually seem to be in place? >> yeah. >> a deep hmm. >> they sort of don't. this is a really problematic story for the administration. >> i think this one almost as much or more than anything
, were breaking the law in terms of nsa spying, were not warrantless wire tapping like was done in the bush administration with no cries of impeachment from the right, but things they have to say they support. >> look, maureen dowd goes out there and says it this weekend, and i am readying myself for the conservative arrows as i read the words of maureen dowd in the new york times. the race thing, which is a very, you know, people will argue about this, but the amount of hatred that is focused on this president is not just about legislation. >> right. it is -- there is a thread from -- there was a nice piece in the "new york times" about this, the same birther crowd that is just fundamentally not accepted the legitimacy of this person being the president of the united states and it is not a very far drumming from he was not born here, he was born in kenya and therefore to let us get him out of office in any way possible. >> ben, your colleague at "new york" magazine jonathan chait has a good metaphor. they says they are not ready to impeach. on the otherhand they have little dou

to keep us safe. i don't mean to make too many false -- i make too many on the show. talk about the nsa and terrorism and the security being the american politics, cannot touch the funding for that and sort of walk back any of those policies means your soft on terror. same with crime. we have a policy that is working, but is the it really working? as i said, the long-term psychological effect and the fact that this point really to systemic failure in certain communities that begs much more serious policy, i think, than this sort of ad hoc racial fr k frisking. we don't ask though questions around safety and securitiant there's a huge incentive for politics whether the nsa or whether it's stop and frisk in minority communities or high-crime communities that there's a huge incentive for politicians to take steps that at least appear to maybe them look like they're solving a problem that's scaring people, and they're worry fundamental they turn them off or reorient in some way that addresses certain peoples concerns and crime or terrorism goes up, whether there's a causal connection, they
to that, whether it's drones, whether it's the nsa, whether it's drugs. we need a whole rethink here. i think this is part of that larger trend as well. >> bryan, i want to get your thoughts on stop and frisk. we haven't asked you about that. there's an interesting former, i think, police officer, who writes in the u.s. daily news, giving new yorkers who haven't followed it a sense of how we got here. he writes toward the ends of the decade, political paranoia set in. 9/11 was a part of history and pre-giuliani seemed to vanish. suppose crime went up 2% to 1966 levels instead of falling to 1964 levels. captains wouldn't be promoted. bloomberg's legacy would be affected. a victim of their own success. we are valuing quantity over quality and stopping the arrest rates got you a promotion internally. >> i think there's no question there have always been political pressures to make more arrests, get more people incarcerated. it's been the formula for success and law enforcement and public safety and politics. the difficulty is we have done it at great cost. we have victimized black and brow
policies being instituted. >> i would say, i think the nsa stuff and stop and frisk are slightly different insofar as the racial element. >> what are we willing to do to prevent the next x. >> we have to ask that question. i sort of want to talk a little bit about bloomberg's legacy here. because this is a man with, i mean he's coming out swinging and swinging hard complete ly - i think all of these policies cement in place. >> you can't that. >> this part of his -- extremely successful, extremely wealthy self-made businessman. and it is very hard when you're giving up the stage to see all of these people coming up behind you, actually attacking you they can point to declining crime as -- crime is a different kind of healing anyway. but that's just not the kind of person he is, that's not the kind of ambition he's setting out for himself. how do we treat each other in this sort of cloud of suspicion that now hangs over certain sectors of society? >> i think bloomberg will leave a legacy that's pretty damned solid. gun violence, environmental policy, in those respects he's pushed agenda ite
, well maybe we do need to have more spying domestically. maybe we do have to be -- allow nsa to have greater control over these things. this is the sort of situation that really brings that back. last week or so the congress was in session. you had a number of members that were coming out and saying look, i feel that we gave the administration a blank check to do all this sort of stuff and i don't think that it was maybe appropriate. maybe we should try to dial it back. maybe we should have some laws, change the laws. then this happens and all these members come out and say, no, no, no, we're terrified. >> these laws? the u.s. constitution. it is not like a light thing. i mean if my neighbor wants to come in my house and i say, sure, you can go borrow a dish and they go rummaging through my drawers, that's kind of what the u.s. government is doing right now on u.s. nationals. i think to the point that there is still the ability to obviously have terror attacks, the question is how do we respond to them in a way that preserves or democracy. >> how much does something like this derail
. >> he lives out of the country. >> news organizations. >> the nsa missed that they vacuum all of the e-mail communication outside of the country. they're getting him and anybody that communicates with him. it goes on a network effect from there. >> the implications both in terms of source and journalistic interaction, like the idea that you have to have encrypted communication is a new way of thinking about journalism, that you really -- i mean, the constant awareness that nothing you do or say online in any electronic format is safe -- >> right. >> -- changes the dynamic. >> not the potted plant out on the patio. >> no, it's not. >> it sounds crazy. it's a way to marginalize you and make you sound like a nut. >> speaking of marginalizing and sounding like a nut -- terrible segue. no, that's not what i meant. turning now to new jersey, chairman steele, cory booker is one step closer to heading to capitol hill after winning the primary. with 50% of the vote, he hand dilly won. after his victory booker addressed his supporters. >> it is such an honor to be your nominee, to be your democr
the issue with the nsa which i think hurt his own personal credibility. it's become the example of gone washington, if you will, the defending the system as it is versus trying to change some things as he wanted it to be. i think, you know, the aim of this and it's been part of this whole, i think over the last six weeks they've tried to do this every couple weeks, some form of this, this is a bus trip, they've done different things when they've gone around the country, is to try to send the message to the middle of the country. by middle, middle class voters, middle of the electorate, et cetera, that, hey, he is still focused on the economy, education is part of the economy. we know the high cost of tuition is something that is bothersome to a lot of people. we know you think we haven't didn't enough in washington. the question is, the hard part for him, he's in year five. does he have the credibility with this group of americans who think, okay, yes, he did have his eye on the ball or at a minimum, okay, he's got his eye on the ball more than the other guys so maybe at least i'll take
